Hello, I'm trying to be able to push alt-f6 to run my Symfony 2 unit tests in 

The unit tests run fine from the CLI: from the /app subfolder, I run phpunit, 
which reads phpunit.xml from that directory and then finds and runs all tests.

In Netbeans, when I specify my phpunit.xml in the project properties and push 
alt-f6, I get:

PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'PHPUnit_Framework_Exception' with 
message 'Could not find class "" in "C:\Program Files\NetBeans 
7.1\php\phpunit\NetBeansSuite.php".' in 

I don't know why it's accessing NetBeansSuite.php if I've specified an .xml 
file.  The .xml file specifies how to find the tests.

I've tried setting "Use Custom Test Suite", and point to a test suite that 
can find the Symfony 2 test files.  But Netbeans doesn't care.  It still 
tries to use NetBeansSuite.php.  I can get it to work if I follow the 
NetBeans instructions and let NetBeans generate test classes based on 
existing source, but this is not compatible with a test-first workflow, nor 
is it compatible with the default Symfony 2 folder structure.

So, what is the proper way to get NetBeans to run Symfony 2 unit tests?
